maple outdoorsy ruggedness. tastes as if i were in my grandparents' backyard drinking the maple syrup right from the tree. one can taste the lifetime of that tree.
dusty mint fields that have been covered in post war ashes. one single approach to the tongue and you will realize the sensation of licking an ash tray filled with menthol cigarettes. i do applaud the manufacturer for its novel and wacky flavours. do try them and try not to be shy.
pretty, pretty, pretty.... i could not wait for the ribbon to unravel. these are exquisite masterpieces that should never be eaten. the waxy taste of the encassing does not compare to the artistry of the chocolate. i do recommend the caramel variety.

one of the most quintessential books is the chocolate connoisseur. it is a phenomenal read and tackles the history of chocolate, cocoa plantations, and the "chocolate philosophy." you will soon learn how to differentiate between what is good chocolate and what is bad chocolate.
